. >> we can now definitively say that president barack obama will be re-elected, mitt romney will come up a loser in this race. >> jon: the billing media story of the year, the presidential election. that was how it ended. barack obama beating mitt romney and an end to a bitter season that started early with the g.o.p. primaries and events like this. >> we saw some of this black church in south carolina where a woman asked you why you referred a president obama as the food stamp president. it sounds as if you are suitcase to go belittle people. >> first of all, juan, the fact is that more people have been put on food stamps by barack obama than any president in american history. [ cheers and applause ] >> i know among the political kli correct and i'm supposed to you use facts that are uncomfortable. [ laughter ] >> so that was just part of a long and memorable primary season. juan, is that your highlight of the year. [ laughter ] >> my highlight? it is telling again for newt gingrich. he in a subsequent debate when we was asked about extramarital life and enough about these questions and
ten moments of an election year is like finding your favorite grain of sand on the beach. there are an impossible number of possibilities. there are the moments when catch phrases become boomerangs. >> if you got a business, you didn't build that. >> i like being able to fire people who provide services to me. >> when cast members stole the spotlight. >> i'm an american woman who us contraception. let's start there. >> almost like an etch a sketch, you can shake it up and we start all over again. >> a fair number of moments ranging from ridiculous to explicable. >> i'm not going to shut up. it's my turn. >> i think it's called romnesia. >> if i were to coin a term it would be obamaloney. >> so many moments so much nonsense. but there were moments that shook up the race or made history and made our top ten list. >> it was seen at the time as a proxy race for november. wisconsin's republican governor scott walker in a showdown with organized labor over budget cuts and collective bargaining power. turns out the end result was no bellwether for the presidential race. walker w
will begin to define his second term. he was elected to lead. we can still avoid going over the fiscal cliff if the president and the democrat- controlled senate step forward this week to solve this problem. >> we also talked to washington post reporter lori montgomery for an update on the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> what kind of a deal did the president offer, and what is new in the negotiations among the senators and between the senators and the white house? >> it does not appear to be anything new. the policies they're talking about are the same policies that have been on the table for weeks and weeks. what is new is that they seem to have finally agreed they're going to move forward with something. there is no guarantee that the republican leader and the democratic leader will be able to put together an agreement. at least they are now saying they will try to do it. they're working together and aiming towards a vote either late sunday or monday. >> what is the scuttlebutt among the rank-and-file senators about whether or not they're going to be able to pull this off before the end of t
the threshold for tax increases, reversing massive pay cut from medicare doctors, and elections of millions of americans to avoid paying the alternative minimum tax. an increase in the debt ceiling is not part ofhe discussion. that is significant development r house republicans who won any increase in the borrowing limit it accompanied by an equal amount in spending cuts taking the debt ceiling of the table making it much easier for the scaled-down version to be negotiated. from here senate leaders will try to secure an agreement by sunday morning. if so, democrats and republicans will try to sell its house and senate members. if they can do that the voting begins. there is some progress report this evening, though there are no guarantees. congress will act to resolve this. tom: this sounds a little bit like bob woodward's book to by bob woodward's book when he talked about the debt ceiling fight back in 2011. mcconnell, from the way i read it, mcconnell and reid took it away from the president and said , let us to work our own deal by ourselves, kind of cutting him out of the negotiations.
danger of not being re-elect side a conservative challenger ran against them saying hey, you supported a tax increase and you supported something president obama liked and that's what they have to think about each day they go to work and that's why they don't compromise on things they should compromise on. >> lynn, you said you're want optimistic about a deal being struck. do you still feel that way? >> oh, i think i would put the optimism meter up a notch or two just because people are working on there, and the more you look at the limited number of hours left, you actually probably can buy a little more time because for practical matter, the markets are go -- i believe are closing early on monday or at least there's not a lot of trading and if you need more time to let the ink dry on a stopgap measure and if people work on new year's day and the real deadline is noon january 3rd on thursday when this congress expires and these members and you have to swear in the new congress. >> so i even see a little more leeway, if it's just a matter to get the paperwork in order, but it is just d
, the president said ordinary americans can sort through disagreements. >> the notion that our elected leadership cannot do the same thing is mind-boggling to me. it needs to stop. >> if they come to a good deal, not just one that is forced -- >> of the white house christmas tree a short distance from where the president met with congress, both local residents and people from all over the country -- >> it would be nice if the king to a compromise. >> gave us their take. many worry about the tax increases that could kick in. and they are angry we are four days a out with no deal. >> it is ridiculous. this is a necessary. >> while the republican senate minority leader is staying positive the democratic senate majority leader warns -- >> whatever we come up with is going to be imperfect and some people are not going to like it. >> the president says if a big deal cannot be reached, he wants at least a smaller deal to keep middle-class taxes from going up and to extend unemployment benefits. >> at this point, i just hope they get something done. >> click on need to come together and come to an agreem
that people are granted 2010 it got elected or the people ran before and it now ascended to positions of leadership believes that go with a solution or they were like that to not do things i supposed to do things? >> well, again, from a class of 2010 and our effort to the the 87 freshman, the so-called tea party class of the 112 congress, their belief is they are doing precisely what the people who elected them did, which is rolled back obama initiatives, cut spending. a lot that the debt ceiling should not be increased under a circumstances where they feel like i was a failure. but they basically believe their job is first to obstruct barack obama and once there is a republican president in place to pass this initiatives that create better business climate. more and more deregulation committee funding of programs that have never quite been near and dear to them. i think they do believe -- of course to fast-forward a bit about the debt ceiling fiasco of 2011, but after the summer we were taken to the brink of a fiscal cliff, one we are about to see it it can come in to thinking part o
elections matter, but really they do matter, because they redrew the districts in such a way that make them relatively safe. so even if they make the bad deal, they may open the case that says you are re-elected in 2014. >> that is why you see bay snor who thought he had a great plan, the plan b that would provide his caucus with political coverage to go back to say that we are willing to increase the tax rates, and democrats didn't want to do it, and now we will start over and his own caucus could not get behind that, so even when they have their leader trying to put something before them that will provide political cover for them all, they can't get those numbers to vote for it. so i don't know, even if they kick it up to the senate, if the senate kicks it back down to them, that he is going to be able to get the support he needs in his caucus to pass it through the house. >> speaking of kicking it around, and that is what the president said yesterday. he asked that reid go to the up or down vote to see what it is, and what is the politics around that? >> well, john boehner, and it is imp

approved same-sex marriage in november's elections. gay marriage is already legal in d.c. and six other states. >>> regrettable, politically motivated, saddening. these are all statements made by u.s. officials about russia's decision to ban americans from adopting russian children. russian president putin signed the ban into law friday. lawmakers there cite a history of abuse of russian children adopted by american families. however, many believe it was in retaliation against a law that president obama signed that imposes u.s. travel and financial restrictions on human rights abusers in russia. this morning, i spoke with carrie kayhill and asked if the chances of adopteding a 13-year-old boy from daniel in an orphanage in siberia, if she thinks her chances are over. >> i'm ever hopeful that things are going to change. i'm hopeful that better communication between both countries might cause putin to rethink the thing that he just signed. >> how far along were you in this process to adopt him before the ban went into effect? >> well, i'd already met daniel. i had lived over there for a f

,000 even though that's what the campaign campaigned for re-election on. the white house said hey, we had to hold debate about this and the american public gave them a mandate to do that. the republicans aren't there yet. plus there's lots of other things. this small deal that's getting smaller by the hour won't even drea is the across the board spending cuts. there are still many obstacles in the way of a deal that and you also have to have a deal from mcconnell and read thatid that can pass in the house. what's the proets cal for getting it there and who's going to say yes, we can do that at this point? >> let's revisit our high school civics on a saturday morning. that i have to pass it meaning they don't filibuster or don't block and if they vote it through, then the house gets it and the house has to decide if, in fact, republicans and democrats can vote for it. historically john boehner said he wants a very large majority of republicans to vote for this. he's not interested in trying to get democratic votes for it. if he changes his mind and a senate deal coming
